  • CITRUS  HEIGHTS, CA - In addition to posing a serious danger to others on the road, distracted drivers can cause delay in emergency response time for failing to recognize the need to pull over, says the Sacramento Metro Fire Department.

    The Great Hang Up took a ride with Sac Metro's Station 21 and Captain Tom Neville explained how frustrating it is if they are waiting for someone to pull over.  He continued to express how much more frustrating that becomes when they pass the vehicle and see a cell phone in their hand.

    TAKE THE PLEDGE TO HANG UP AND DRIVE
